GEORGETOWN, Del. (AP/WBOC)- A Delaware woman has pleaded guilty to child endangerment after authorities say her 4-year-old daughter handed out heroin at her day care thinking it was candy.

According to the Delaware Department of Justice, Ashley Tull pleaded guilty to one count of endangering the welfare of a child on Wednesday.

She was originally charged with three counts of endangering the welfare of a child (one count for each of her three children).

Superior Court Judge E. Scott Bradley sentenced Tull to one year of probation.

The DOJ said Tull was also ordered to complete a substance abuse evaluation and comply with treatment recommendations. She was additionally ordered to comply with the Division of Family Services regarding contact with her children.

Tull was charged in October after police said her daughter unknowingly took 250 packets of heroin to a Selbyville day care and passed them out to other children.

When workers realized the baggies contained heroin, they collected them and called police.
